Astro-Gyaan (Part 1)

Astrology…this is one subject which has always intrigued me…..right from childhood, I used to be very amused by the fact that a change in planetary movements can change the course of our lives, just like how the gravitational pull of the moon causes tides on earth.

Astrological signs represent 12 equal segments or divisions of the zodiac. The 12 zodiac signs, usually referred to as ‘sun signs’, are the most common tools that we use to understand our personalities and those of others. In fact, most people who want to know you must have asked you your zodiac sign within he first two meetings! 😀 This proves the popularity of the zodiac signs in our lives. The term zodiac stands for animals. Astrologically, it refers to the various patterns formed by the stars in the sky. Each of the 12 zodiac signs is said to have its own unique set of attributes, talents, strengths and weaknesses. Here, I’ll talk about the general characteristics of each sign.

1000 hits! Yaaaay :)

Phew! After 5 odd months on WordPress, finally reached the first big milestone 🙂 …..and it couldn’t have come on a better day……it started off with the ‘extra-time’ which my favourite teacher gave us for a particular test ( I guess if he is not satisfied with this also, he’ll have penalty shootouts for us 😀 ) ….we all played UNO after that in his own class (man, what an awesome game! 🙂 ) …..which resumed in lunch break with a bigger gang and 10 times the fun! 🙂  Then came the blogging competition which was more like a training exercise for the juniors….after that, we all just sat outside the seminar hall and chatted for some time before I shifted base to the canteen with the girl gang of our class…..and there we went on and on for a long time, imitating and teasing each other 😀 ……hehe…..wish there are more such happy days in our last few months in college 🙂

Terrorized!

13th September, 2008 – Serial bomb blasts maim the national capital

26th July, 2008 – 17 bomb blasts rip Ahmedabad apart

25th July, 2008 – 9 bomb blasts shock the otherwise peaceful IT capital

The list goes  on……..

Its really sad that such news has become so common……everyday we see so many people dying, so many more grieving over the loss of their loved ones…..(a valiant policeman was also killed in a well-planned encounter a couple of days back)…all thanks to the evil demeanor of some self-centred miscreants, who want to spread fear in our country  …and I question myself- why is all this happening over and over again???? Why do governments always politisize the issue, with each party blaming the other??? Why is it so difficult to fight against this menace??? People read about such incidents, and forget about it after 2 days, until another mishap occurs somewhere else…also, the arrested people belonging to the so-called ‘most wanted’ list, are held captive for years, till someone hijacks one of our planes in their return. Why can’t there be strict laws against terror???

If I were the supreme ruler of our country, I would ensure that all anti-national elements held captive be killed immediately, in front of the people of the country! That would send a strong message across to those rats sitting and watching from their holes that we are not scared of them, and are more than willing to eradicate them completely! Terrorize the terrorist, so that he thinks a thousand times before planning to commit another such act.

But is all this possible with our current leaders, who are worried only about their seat and their vote bank??? I can’t believe that one of our senior national leaders blamed the other party for targetting states in which they had their governments! I think India is the only country which has a murderer as the chief minister of a state…..

According to me, its upto us, the youth of India, to clean this rot in the system. We should be inspired by movies like ‘Yuva’ and ‘Rang De Basanti’, and take the reins of the future in our hands.  Only educated and dedicated leaders who work for the interest of the nation, and not to meet their vested needs,  can push India towards prosperity.

JAI HIND!

Back with a (Big) Bang!
